Tata Safari Storme Preview

Tata’s facelift version of Safari with an additional suffix ‘Storme’ was first launched in 2012. Feature list includes most of the equipment seen on rivalling SUVs, although it misses out on some equipment. Power comes from a 2.2 litre, DOHC VTT, VARICOR diesel powertrain paired to a manual gearbox. The more powerful VARICOR 400 diesel unit, essentially the same engine is equipped in the range topping VX variant, linked to a new six-speed manual transmission. 

Tata’s facelift version of Safari with an additional suffix ‘Storme’ was first launched in 2012. To Tata’s disappointment, the overhauled version failed to appeal to the masses unlike the regular avatar which ruled for long. To inveigle larger audiences, Tata rolled out special editions followed by facelift versions and a new more powerful variant. Albeit, the quick overhauls could not do any good to the SUV falling short in the thick of rivals.  Exteriors are hulking, but they do not appeal for some reason. Interiors are spacious and surprisingly better styled than outside. Feature list includes most of the equipment seen on rivalling SUVs, although it misses out on some fitments. Power comes from a 2.2 litre, DOHC VTT, VARICOR diesel powertrain paired to a manual gearbox.

Tata Safari Storme Exterior

In profile, it looks huge or more of bulky, the front chrome finished dual-slat grille meets with the large pulled back head light units. A thick chrome band is placed just above the front grille showcasing STORME embossing in black. The bonnet is flat and hence makes the SUV appear old-fashioned. Fog lamps assembly on lower side of bumper features fog lights and small air-intakes. Frankly, the front wind-screen and the mundane window frame on flanks are a huge put off. Side profile isn’t impressive and appears too crowded featuring multiple creases. Wheel arches are flared and a side stepper is placed for convenience of passengers. Moreover, the tyres are not placed justly; there is a conspicuous gap between arches and wheels. Despite various makeovers, Tata could not do justice to the rear styling, it looks dated featuring a rounded spoiler at top, a flat boot lid, a pair of unimpressive tail lights, reflectors and dual chrome finished tail pipes.

Tata Safari Storme Interior

Thankfully for Strome, interior is styled better than the exterior. Embracing a dark tone with splashes of silver all around, cabin looks way more up-market. One of the highlights of the cabin is the responsive four-spoke steering wheel borrowed from Zest. Besides, the dashboard is styled modishly, although the quality of material used inside is not up to the mark. Silver finished centre console features ac vents, temperature dials and a music system. Floor console has practical cubby holes for storage purpose. Instrument cluster behind the steering is large and clearly visible. There is abundance of space for front and rear passengers with comfortable leg room. Two jump seats are placed at the back for seating two additional passengers. The large glass area provides ample visibility especially to the driver.

Problamatic sedimenter positioning

I bought the car around two weeks back and it has done only 350km. Now within two weeks, I am facing problems with a part called sedimenter which is placed just below the front passenger seat, its placed so low that a sensor attached to it is just 6 to 7 inches above the ground and it is positioned just behind the front passenger wheel. It is even lower than the chassis. A stone or a pebble if jumps because of coming under the wheel will surely hit the sedimenter which exactly happened with me. I was driving the vehicle on a Sunday night and it suddenly stopped, I tried to crank the engine but it didn't work. The next day I took the vehicle to its authorised workshop. After checking the vehicle, the service advisor told me that the sedimentor got hit by something and has become faulty we will have to change it and it doesn't come under warranty and you will have to pay for it. I was made to pay Rs. 3670. I don't know what hit the vehicle, there is not even a single scratch on it. Yes if a stone jumps from the tyre its not my fault, the sedimenter is positioned at the wrong place, its so low that the sensor attached to it is even lower than the chassis and I think I should get the part replaced under warranty. Now for the last one week I have been registering complaints after complaints but as you all know nothing is happening. I don't know why they call it an SUV, because a stone jumps from its tyre and it stops working!

Underestimated SUV

Very good ride quality and absorb every pot holes comfortably.Does not require frequent gear change you can drive at 40kmph speed even in top gear result in better fuel efficiency of 12.5kmpl in local driving 15-16kmpl on highway. A.C. and Harmon kardon music system is awesome. Very comfortable driving in rains and night and on single road due to good visibility.

Not worth the money

It is comfortable, it is stylish but you can get stranded any time, it happened with me thrice at long distance in midst of nowhere. The timing belt gets Snapped,the tappets are destroyed and your car is not moveable. No other car is ready tow this heavy car.the service team is lethargic, don't care attitude. Really worst. The timing belt snaps in frequent intervals of hardly 10-15 k KM's. Promised never to take a TATA vehicle.
